Germany, Berlin: Bike city

GERMANY, BERLIN: BIKE CITYBy OLAF GEIGER It was in Berlin, city of rampant car-mania, that I first fell for the bicycle. Berlin has always been a hotbed of new ideas and experimental lifestyles, but now that it is no longer an isolated outpost of western ways, the possibilities for change become even more interesting. The city is still choked by a million petrol engines, but it becomes obvious by the day that it is, potentially, a perfect city for cycling.

The ancient city of Seville, visible to the north of the Strait of Gibraltar, is one of the largest cities in Spain. The astronaut view is looking toward the east, and is part of atime-lapse series of images.The network of smaller cities and towns along the coastline and in the interior attest to the extent of the human presence on the Iberian landscape.
